It all seems good to me, i made a schedule but things just didnt work out the way i planned (our caterer was 2 hours late), just be prepared to switch it up if you need to πŸ™‚

looks good! just a few questions… how many in your BP? 2.5 hours seems kinda cutting it close if you have a lot of BMs to get hair and makeup done.

make sure you have a few light snacks during that time. fruit is helpful! πŸ™‚

30 minutes for formal family pics – we ran into problems when friends also wanted pictures and families had their ideas on who and how many pics were to be taken.

the rest look great! πŸ™‚

I would give the schedule to the DJ–as they really are in charge of the show! We made one out like this, and like the above poster stated–be prepared for change =) The night went by so quickly and I have no idea if we did everything at the right time or in the right order. Our DJ was great and when he was ready to do something, would make contact with one of my parents and they would come and get us and say–why don’t we cut the cake now, or something like that.

like @vickyness: said people will have opinions on who should be in pictures and it can take a little longer than you might think, but to help with the confusion, make a list of everyone you want formal pics with and who need to be in the shot (my photographer was very thankful for this list) do big groups first

@HeatherShane: We had a list… and even then it was getting out of hand. πŸ™ I had to finally put my foot down and tell everyone that the photogs are professionals and we’ll email everyone a copy since every Aunt and Uncle and cousin in the picture wanted a photo taken on THEIR camera. UGH!

@jschneider1145: Just a side note. I was recently at a wedding at the Piper Palm House and it was beautiful!!! Very nice choice!
